This commission prepares the proposed annual budget of the church with the assistance of the President of the Executive Board and ministerial staff. They review and adjust, if necessary, the budget as approved by the congregation to meet the expected income for the budget year and recommend necessary changes to the Executive Board for final approval. They work with the Business Manager to institute policies and procedures to follow in keeping the financial records of the church, and keep in the forefront of efforts, that growth as a committed Christian is directly related to one's concept of Christian stewardship. They help the congregation have a complete understanding of Christian stewardship, the church's annual budget and what ministries their giving supports.
